*Editor’s note: This article will continue to be updated throughout NFL free agency.

NFL free agency is here.

Following the NFL’s two-day legal tampering window that opened Monday, free agents can sign new contracts with teams as the 2019 league year officially got underway Wednesday afternoon.

Many major moves had already been reported across the league, including for other teams in the NFC East, but Cowboys fans continue to wait on their team to make a big splash.

Hopes of Earl Thomas playing in Dallas have been dashed. However, the Cowboys did sign free-agent safety George Iloka. Will other free agents appear on the Cowboys’ radar? Or will they simply focus on retaining their own, notably defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence?

The Cowboys appear to be in relatively good shape financially, with an estimated $25.5 million available under the salary cap. However, a quick glance into the future tells a much different story.
